This is not an attraction. Is a place you go and donate because you want to support the work of the missionaries. When I went, there were absolutely no turists. By the way, no pre-booking needed, just drop by. The kids (also adults) sleep between 12:00 and 15:30. So, if you want some interaction, then drop by before or after... More

Nobody suggests them to visit Missionaries of Charity but please update it in your list for your next visit. You will how few humble nuns take care of orphans, challenged children and adults and also the abandoned old people. This is... More

We visited with a group. Very touching, had a young boy climb up me and cling to me. When I put him back down he looked me in the eyes and said dada. The section with challenged children is even more heart wrenching. A sobering reminder of how good most of us have it in North America.

This is located off of a very busy street in the heart of the city. Be aware there are beggars around the mission. You have to take off your shoes to enter. Pictures of her room and tomb are not permitted. We visited the orphanage there. We could visit the orphanage for "normal" children and then proceed to those with... More

I can't say enough about the nuns and people who run this place. Mother Teresa would be proud. The children and adults living here are clean and well taken care of as are the rooms and facilities. They must work round the clock... I can't imagine. I wish everyone in the U.S. could visit a place like this-- seems unreal... More

Don't forget to bring a photo copy of your passport. Or at least the passport number. To donate in India you need it. This is a great organization started by an amazing woman. Every penny hoes to helping those in need. Great work done by these women. It is very well run. Children and women with disabilities. We were warned... More

Do make time to visit here and if possible donate cash or items to support the good work here. Our driver found it a bit hard to find, but persevere and cleanse your soul a little. Every little bit helps I am sure.
